Rosaleen Moriarty-Simmonds OBE at the Hearth Gallery, Llandough
4th December 2019 – 5th January 2020
Based on the theme ‘Mouth Painting Art’, this inspiring exhibition will showcase 18 of Rosaleen’s original paintings, all created by holding a paint brush in her mouth.
As a member of the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists, the festive season is a particularly important time of the year, since sales of Christmas cards is their primary source of income. With National Christmas Card Day falling on Monday 9th December, Rosaleen will mark the occasion by holding a Private View of her work between 2-3 pm and as part of the event the artist will be on hand to speak to visitors and to answers any of their questions. All visitors are welcome.
Rosaleen has spent her adult life Campaigning for Rights and Equality for Disabled People and in 2015, was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s New Years Honours List. Her campaign work also led to her receiving an Honorary Fellowship from Cardiff University in 2017 which was followed by an Honorary Doctorate and Fellowship from Swansea University.
The exhibition is Open Daily from 9am – 8pm and will be located at:
The Hearth Gallery
Plaza Exhibition Space
Ground Floor, University Hospital Llandough
